We are very excited to announce that the Groundswell Sessions Programme is now available to view online. The theme of this two-day event is “Conservation Agriculture: Practical ideas on how to farm in the new environmental and political climate, whilst regenerating your core asset – the soil”.

With over 80 sessions running in 6 areas over two days, there is plenty to see and do. View the comprehensive programme of demonstrations, seminars and workshops, covering a wide range of topics related to Conservation Agriculture, soil health, carbon sequestering and environmentally sensitive farming. Don’t miss the Wednesday evening Pasture-Fed Spit Roast BBQ at The Earthworm Arms from 6pm. There will be over 100 exhibiting organisations,  Drill Manufacturers/Suppliers will be demonstrating on both days.

You can see the profiles of the Speakers who are lined up to talk. Two TAA members, John Landers and Amir Kassam, will be members of a panel considering the implications of the current media storm about Glyphosate, and the positive or negative effects that a ban on the chemical would have on UK agriculture and the environment, and no-till farming in particular (26thJuly).
